Comfort by Design with the Simmons Beautyrest Black Mattress

The Simmons Beautyrest Black Mattress is a premium quality mattress designed to make a difference in how the body responds to sleep. It features patented research technology that enables consistent feel and comfort to relieve tired and aching bodies with unique memory foam that gives massage like comfort to the mattress and those sleeping in it.

Because the Simmons Beautyrest Black Collection consists of foam placed under pressure before being put into the makings of the bed, the foam loft becomes more flexible. This means that sleepers will not have to break in the mattress to make it more comfortable. It will be giving restful sleep from day one of entering your home.

Murau Dual Cushion Queen Mattress/Boxspring SetThe reliable construction of this Simmons Beautyrest mattress is built to last with pocket coil springs made of triple woven, high carbon steel. Its durability provides for motion separation for two sleepers so that when one moves the other will not be disturbed, and its body support is unmatched for superior performance that lasts. Each coil is wrapped in hypo-allergenic fabric to keep sniffles and allergy issues in check, and they allow for supportive molding to the body when resting on the bed.

Made from the finest quality materials including natural latex, the Beautyrest Black provides responsive and comfortable sleep support unmatched by competitor mattresses. It truly will provide an undisturbed sleep experience.

Kids Bedroom Furniture

Every mother wants her child to have a playful, age-appropriate, and well-organized bedroom. But, children grow so quickly that it’s often difficult to decide which furnishings to choose. Here are a few tips from The Roomplace for choosing a child’s bedroom furniture, and decorating a child’s bedroom.

Bed, Dresser and Nightstand: When selecting major pieces for your child’s bedroom, it’s important to consider your child’s present and future needs. After all, bedroom furniture is a major purchase, and should be designed to last for years.

For example, selecting a well-constructed, full-size bedroom furniture set which will bring years of enjoyment is often a better long-term value than choosing a toddler bed or other cartoon character-themed items which your child will likely outgrow within a few years. In addition, classic furniture styles with neutral wood finishes will accommodate many decorating themes, and your child’s changing preferences over the years.

When selecting a child’s bed, don’t forget about the possibility of hosting sleepovers with friends! A trundle bed provides a comfortable place for a friend to settle in, and can be neatly tucked out-of-sight when not in use.

Accessories: After selecting major furnishings, you’ll want to add the finishing touches to your child’s bedroom by bringing in fun accessories that express their unique personality. Accessories can be easily changed as your child grows and changes, so they provide a great way to bring in their favorite characters, animals, and television shows. Don’t forget a small lamp for reading bedtime stories, and a nightlight to scare away any fear of the dark.

Storage: When choosing furniture and accessories for your child’s bedroom, look for items with shelves and built-in storage compartments. Bins and baskets added to a simple bookcase make great places for storing and organizing blocks, toys, dolls, and books.

The children’s bedroom furniture shown above is available at The Roomplace. Stop by any of our showrooms, or visit our website at


Care and Maintenance of Black Lacquer Bedroom Furniture

Monterey 7 Pc. King BedroomBlack lacquer bedroom furniture adds depth to bedroom furnishings. Its urban, upscale feel lends a hotel like atmosphere and is ideal for those seeking modern design elements in the bedroom. The care of black gloss bedroom furniture is a little different than cleaning standard wood furniture. Regular cleaning maintenance can leave streaks and dust behind. Certain substances can also scratch the delicate finish so special care is needed to protect the furniture and keep it bright and shiny in appearance.

Black bedroom furniture shows dirt and dust easily and will also readily reveal scratches. Although the finish appears exceptionally hard, it is still prone to chipping and denting. The best way to clean black lacquer is to use a soft, damp cloth that has been wrung of all moisture. Be sure to only use soft cotton or flannel never coarse fabrics or paper towels as they can cause scratching. Begin dusting the furniture in long straight sweeps rather than a circular motion which can leave wipe marks.
Once dusting is complete, go back over the furniture with a dry cloth. If there are still fingerprints or smudges, then it may be necessary to use a mild soap such as Murphy’s Oil Soap. Never use heavy furniture polish on black lacquer furniture as it will streak and weaken the black finish with prolonged use.
With proper care and maintenance, you will be able to enjoy the appearance of your black lacquer bedroom furniture for many years to come. Make sure to visit any of our 23 stores for the best complete rooms of black lacquer furniture as well as traditional and contemporary bedrooms in a variety of styles and finishes.

A little lighting can go a long way

Home lighting brightens more than just a surface. Lights and overhead lighting emphasizes home design elements, adds warmth to rooms and creates its own visual that is interesting to the eye.  Experts say that lighting is just as important as the furniture it illuminates when it comes to bringing a room together.

Home lighting isn’t just about the light bulb – It’s about brightness, contour, shading and impact. There are two main types of interior light: direct and indirect. Direct lighting refers to overhead fixtures and ceiling lights, while indirect, or ambient, lighting includes desk, table and floor lamps. When thinking about ambient lighting consider the mood you want for your room and how that will impact your house. Do you want to create a darker, dreamier (think candle-lit) space or a living room that has a lot of lighting. Whatever option you prefer, home decor lighting will generate great reactions from your guests and family. 

The importance of well-positioned ambient lighting from table lamps and floor lamps comes from their mobility. Different shades of lighting also play off the color schemes around rooms enriching deep jewel tones and softening bright pastels. For instance, a table lamp with a generous cream lampshade casts a warm pool of light perfect for a reading corner.  One design tip to follow if you live in a tight space is to use more lighting. Rooms that are full of light appear larger to the eye. Be trendy and practical.  For example, check out the On Demand floor lamp that is both extremely stylish and very practical. The dimmer allows you to control how much light comes into the room and ultimately lets you choose how your sofas, armoires and entertainment centers really shine.  A little light can go a long way to enhance the appearance of a room.
